Subject: Authority lies.
Not really. Most historians no longer believe Peary's claims. Nor do they accept Cook's. Neither did Cook climb Mt. McKinley, as he claimed. On the other hand, he was wrongly convicted of fraud (promoting oil company stock), the judge being a friend of Peary's. President Roosevelt gave him a full pardon in 1940. Too bad this movie is so atrociously made--on the level of home movies. But it's historically interesting. This all proves that we can take nothing at face value, regardless of the weight of authority.
Subject: yea....um NO.
Admiral Robert Peary was the first man at the North Pole of Earth. This is a fact, period. He utilized local people to help him do it just like Hillary ascending Everest. Cook was a great explorer but he never made it. He could barely get out of shifting ice flow.
The fact that he stars in his own movie must hold some truth to the idea that he was bitter... but wrong.

The acting and pace is strangely wooden, even for a silent film. Conversations go on with no sense of pace, without you knowing who these people are or what theyre having a conversation about.
At the end, theres some badly reproduced newsreel footage of the real explorer, which is somewhat of a cheat, I thought.
Subject: not exactly
